The History of Labor Strikes

Monday, December 04, 2006


Sit-in (as shown in the picture on the right) was a strategy used by strikers. This was affective because it was a peaceful way to strike, while still stopping the productivity of a company.

The cartoon to the right shows that when factory workers went to work, they lost a lot of their rights. One reason for workers to strike was because of the bad working conditions.

Funny cartoon, but when exactly were laws passed to abolish such poor working conditions? When were the workers given their proper rights and not forced to work long hours for very little pay. I know that there were dangerous working conditions within some factories, but werent there other problems, such as child labor? I think you should consider elaborating a bit more on this subject.

I like how you established different features towards the labor strikes. I feel that you could elaborate more on each subject, to bring out a stronger foundation toward each subject.

i really liked how you guys set up your blog and added pictures, i think it helped to portray your thoughts more throughly. I also like how you guys used a wide range of information in your blogs, however more acts/laws would probly help to show how labor unions/working conditions have changed over history.

I dont think you put enough information into the pictures, like when did the sit down strikes occur and such...otherwise using the pictures was a great approach that not many people take.

I really liked that not only did you use actual pictures but you used a cartoon which i think is great because these cartoons show not only whats going on but you have to pay attention to the details. I think you needed more information to go along with your pictures. I didnt get much out of this except examples of violence and then your definition of a strike.
